Gallery Pangolin is proud to represent the Fullard Estate and this major retrospective is the first  solo exhibition of his work since 1998. The show brings together bronzes, assemblages and drawings from all periods of Fullard’s oeuvre, including many previously unseen pieces.

Director of the gallery Jane Buck says:
“Although publicly and critically acclaimed during the golden age of Post-War British sculpture in the late 1950’s and ‘60’s, following his early death in 1973 George Fullard’s work slipped into relative obscurity. The recent surge in interest in this period has seen a growing regard for his work and our exhibition is a timely opportunity to re-assess and acknowledge this intriguing and underrated artist.”

To accompany the exhibition, Gallery Pangolin has commissioned a new monograph on Fullard by author and art historian Michael Bird which will be launched at the exhibition. Bird’s research into the Fullard archive and interviews with people who knew him, inform a timely reappraisal of one of the most distinctive and surprising British artists of the twentieth century.

In his Foreword to the new book, art critic Julian Spalding says of Fullard:
“He was modern because he lived in modern times, not because he leapt onto a bandwagon. His art flowers within the radiance of Rodin, then Picasso, and then he created his own idiom, but all of these expressions are genuine and profound.”
